Hangover: Birdemic 2 The Resurrection Review
How does one review a movie that is trying to be bad, enjoyable but still bad. I could talk about how the sound mixing was garbage, how the camera never seemed to be properly focused on what it wanted to be or what the actors believe to be acting. But that feels too easy.
You don’t go into Birdemic 2: The Resurrection (Not just a snappy title but plot applicable) expecting a well made movie. You go into it expecting something almost passing for a movie to make you laugh. There is a line though, a line that the original Birdemic completely passed into the point of being painful to watch. The sequel, however, I find to actually be a little fun for the last half hour.
This movie had a very slow start for drinking. It also had a very slow middle for drinking. It only really picked up for drinking in the finale with birds existing everywhere and people falling down wildly. The only rule of ours that really applied through out was a rule that appears to not have actually been a rule. I feel that the amount they talked about making movies and movie lingo deserves to be a rule because cheese and rice did they ever talk about it.
The other surprise was the environmental message rule which we thought would be a banger throughout. It did not come up for first hour of movie and then came at us hard in the last 20 minutes with the characters basically being sat down and having environmentally friendly actions explained to them.
I suggest if you are going to watch this movie with our rules to drink whenever you spot a corpse breathing as well. And whenever you are baffled by what you are watching,
The rules were a mixed bag. We worked under the assumption that a sequel would be similar to the original in messaging, but that was foolish. Actually one of the strangest parts of this movie is acknowledging that the first film happened, but it was just any other event to the surviving characters.
Actually, we had an audible and decided to drink for any Hollywood meta talk/commentary because for some reason (We don’t know why… wink wink) the movie is about a director trying to fund his dream indie project. And the gang of “heroes” is made up of executives and talent on the movie.
